Bronco Raptor News

Discuss new updates and news about the all new Ford Bronco Raptor here.
There's bad news for anyone underwhelmed by the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor's powertrain: Larger-displacement engines aren't in store for the off-road monster. At the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R launch Ford Performance boss Carl Widmann explained to Motor Authority why the Bronco Raptor ("Braptor") doesn't have a larger, more powerful, engine than its current twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6. 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor The twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6's a no-go Simply put, the Braptor's too narrow for the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque in the Ford F-150 Raptor. While the Braptor is far from narrow–it's 8.6 inches wider than stock, making it 7.5 feet wide–the added width is from the massive 37-inch tires...
Hennessey has revealed its hardcore modified Ford Bronco Raptor that produces 20 per cent more power and torque than the regular model. US tuning firm Hennessey has revealed its latest wild creation, using the baja-ready Ford Bronco Raptor as a base. Dubbed the Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 Bronco, this fettled Bronco Raptor is the eighth VelociRaptor model the company has created. A new high-capacity intercooler, proprietary engine management system, and high-flow exhaust system help to increase the outputs of the Raptor’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine by 60kW and 149Nm to 372kW of power and 746Nm of torque. The regular Bronco Raptor’s engine produces 312kW and 597Nm, or approximately 20 per cent less. Don’t expect to see even the...
It’s not exactly a surprise that the Ford Bronco was designed to compete directly with the Jeep Wrangler, given the fact that those two vehicles have historically been bitter rivals. However, judging by some recent comparison tests, it seems as if FoMoCo built a better vehicle, as the Wrangler was taken down by both the Bronco and even the Ford Bronco Sport on two separate occasions, the latter of which it doesn’t even compete with. With the Bronco attracting Wrangler owners in large quantities, the next battle on our menu pits the critically-acclaimed Ford Bronco Raptor – which is just starting to reach customers – against the Jeep Wrangler 392, a vehicle The Blue Oval benchmarked it against. And, according to MotorTrend at least, the...
This is an article on Cars.com basically describing their pros and cons experience of the BRap. With the launch of the reinvented Bronco for 2021, Ford resurrected more than just retro styling cues from the original 1966 model. Like the first Bronco, the new incarnation presents serious off-road buyers with an alternative to the iconic Jeep Wrangler, and arguably one that is a tad more civilized and high tech. Now, for 2022, Ford has upped the ante with the Bronco Raptor. Like its F-150 Raptor sibling, the Bronco Raptor is meant to be an off-road performance machine, with extras such as more horsepower, an upgraded suspension and a wider track. The result is a much more capable Bronco, and one better equipped to do battle with Jeep’s...

The Ford Bronco Raptor debuted earlier this year as the ultimate variant of the already capable off-road-focused SUV, packing more power and some serious suspension upgrades in the process. However, the Bronco Raptor will only be produced in limited quantities for the 2022 model year, with most of those examples going to carryover reservation holders. Thus, those that want a more serious version of the new Ford Bronco must look elsewhere, though a number of aftermarket companies are offering fortified versions of the SUV, including Hennessy. Now, the APG Ford Bronco ProRunner package has debuted as another new Raptor alternative. The APG Ford Bronco ProRunner package builds upon the solid base FoMoCo created and adds some serious...
The sixth-generation Ford Bronco launched in 2020 for the 2021 model year, but the iconic SUV’s return was a quarter-century in the making. The Blue Oval created multiple “new” Bronco concepts in the time between the fifth-gen’s discontinuation following the 1996 model year and the revived sixth-gen’s launch, but as it turns out, the automaker was also planning to build the Ford Bronco Raptor before that happened as well. “In terms of how far, we started strategizing about this before Bronco was launched,” Ford Bronco Raptor Chief Engineer, Aerie Groeneveld, told Ford Authority Executive Editor, Alex Luft, in a recent interview. “So we saw the capability of the base Bronco and we knew that we could actually add Raptor DNA on this.”...
A little late on the post, so we will see what disappointing news this week brings :eek:
You'll have to wait until next year if you didn't act quickly enough. Ford is on somewhat of a hot streak lately. People can't seem to get enough of the Blue Oval's products, with popular vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E already sold out for 2022. It's a similar story with the Maverick, so it comes as no surprise that the all-new 2022 Bronco Raptor is following in its siblings' footsteps. Sources close to the matter have said that the range-topping Bronco is no longer available to order for the 2022 model year. Deemed a specialty vehicle, Dearborn has decided to limit production of the Raptor in its debut year. A leaked dealer document uncovered in February explained the "Hand Raiser" program would be utilized for Bronco Raptor orders...
Just like the Ford F-150 Raptor, Ford’s Bronco Raptor is expected to be a lot of fun off road. Earlier this year, the company said this new Bronco variant would make at least 400 hp from its 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. Well, Ford’s boss Jim Farley took to Twitter to tell the masses that the upcoming Bronco Raptor overshot projections and will send 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque through the 10-speed transmission. While the Bronco Raptor’s smaller 3.0-liter V6 is in the shadow of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that powers the Ford F-150 Raptor, it does add a significant performance boost to the Bronco lineup. Currently, Ford’s Bronco is offered with a 2.3-liter turbocharged I4 that makes 300 hp and a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 that makes 330...
So much detail has gone into Ford's new off-road monster. We're suckers for a good Easter egg, and after a long day in the desert, we realized Ford has dropped some into the new Bronco Raptor. Frustratingly, the realization came while photographing the off-roader at the end of the day and just before our time was up with it. We asked if there were more, but the answer was just a nod and a chuckle as they took the keys back. In other words, we're going to have to wait until we have a full week to test drive the Bronco Raptor to try and find the rest. In the meantime, these are the Easter eggs we saw out in the desert. The first Easter egg we saw on the Bronco isn't the coolest, but it's still pretty slick. Due to the roof being...
Well, so much for the wishful thinking that the BRaps will be out starting 6/27 like they said! Another pushback to July and even August now!! 🤯
Deep ruts and moguls? Wildly shaped volcanic rocks? No problem. Micheal Teo Van Runkle Strapped in tight with a helmet and HANS device, I watch Baja 1000 and Mint 400 vet Shelby Hall blast off at full throttle and bury my windshield in a thick dust cloud. I’m up next. I cover the brake pedal with my left foot and ease into the gas, revs climbing to 3,000 RPM before I let loose and pummel the poor polo-shirted Ford rep to my left with another shower’s worth of desert grit. There’s no time to wave “sorry,” though, before I stomp the brakes for an ABS test, four-wheel drift through a slalom cone circuit, then tackle whoops and jumps at more than 60 miles per hour. This is the Ford Bronco Raptor, and it waits for nothing. After...
https://flip.it/riJ5Zw2022 Ford Bronco Raptor Lives Up to the Hype
Ford's newest monster truck is a thirsty beast. The Ford Bronco Raptor is set to be the most powerful version of the model when it goes on sale this summer. The four-door SUV comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 rated at 400 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. It's also equipped with a high performance suspension system that gives it a taller and broader stance than other Broncos, plus 37-inch-tall knobby all-terrain tires. The result of all this is an official EPA fuel economy rating of 15 mpg combined, split 15 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway. That means the average driver will spend $4,250 annually at today's prices, even though it runs on regular grade fuel. The most efficient version of the Bronco, which comes with a...

TFL wants to know why there is no V8 in the new Bronco Raptor.
Back in September of 2020, Ford Authority reported that Ford Motor Company had filed a trademark for “Warthog,” which we believed at the time could foreshadow the name of an upcoming high-performance Ford Bronco variant, perhaps even what most believed was the upcoming Ford Bronco Raptor. Days later, Ford Authority spies spotted a Bronco prototype with “Warthog” written on a camouflaged panel inside the wheel well, seemingly confirming this fact. Of course, that model wound up becoming the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, but many are still wondering what the significance of the Warthog name was to the high-performance off-roader. Now, Aerie Groeneveld, chief engineer of the Bronco Raptor, has confirmed to Ford Authority Executive executive...
Ford said the 2022 Bronco Raptor would have more than 400 horsepower, and it cleared the bar with room to spare. Ford CEO Jim Farley has confirmed the official power rating for the new model on Twitter ahead of the start of deliveries this summer. The high performance Bronco Raptor is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that's unique to the model and has special cooling and air induction systems designed to handle the high temperatures found in deserts where it was designed to be used. The only open-top SUV with more power is the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, which has a 6.4-liter V8 with 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Bronco Raptor is as thirsty as it is powerful, however, with an EPA combined fuel economy rating of 15...
